We hope you will join the AFS Technologies Workshop event June 10 - 11, 2024.  - The AFS Technologies Workshop is an annual gathering of operators, developers, and enthusiasts of the AFS distributed file system and related technologies. OpenAFS offers a heterogenous multi-platform, single-namespace, open source, client-server architecture solution for federated file sharing.  Providing the benefits of location independence, scalability, and transparent migration capabilities for mission-critical data. As such, AFS was a forerunner to cloud and edge computing as it pioneered the very model of storing data in a cloud and delivering parts of it via on-demand caching at the edge - something easily taken for granted today. OpenAFS is used in active use by a variety of organizations, : from government agencies, multinational corporations in finance, manufacturing and medicine, to academic and research institutions. 

Margarete Ziemer, CEO, emphasizes: “We are proud to say we continue to support the open-source community with a sharp focus on the mainframe and OpenAFS areas. We sincerely thank all our past and current customers and our associates. We are always ready to tackle your problems with custom solutions, particularly in the open-source space.”
